Hi Rich. Thank you for the extra photo. I have another one for you, too. I think my mother must have had it in her things and I found it when I was sorting through them. I'm so happy to have this one because it shows her with another of the lucky students who got to have a balloon on his chair for being a winner for the day. It's from 1954. And obviously it must have been March. I"ve posted her obituary and these photos on Facebook and I"ve been getting lots of comments. I'd forgotten that my brother, Ken, also had her for 1st grade. I bet my mother had requested that! Maybe my little brother Rick also had her. I wouldn't be surprised. I have a photo of us from Homecoming night - do you have it? I could send you a copy if you like.

Janet,
Thank you for including the picture. It is such a nice addition. And one never forgets escorting a Princess. Here is another picture from around the same time.
Stay well.

My condolences to you, Rich & Harry. You may recall that I had your mom as a teacher in Room 1. My fondest memory was of winning the Time Telling game and getting a balloon on the back of my chair. I remember I won with identifying "a quarter before 1" for 12:45. I learned a lot that year - so much, in fact, that they wanted me to skip 2nd grade! I wish I'd known that she was still with us in recent years so I could have told her my good memories and to have thanked her. (And thank you again, Rich, for being such a good escort for me as Freshman Princess in 1964.) I hope you can see the photo I"ve posted, of my 1st grade class. I"m still in touch with many of the kids - and of course, Mrs. Wolverton is right there in the picture looking just as I remember her. See if you can find which one is I. My mom always said what a good teacher she was and how lucky I was to have her. I"m glad you got to have her with you as long as you did. I lost my mom in 2008 at age 87. It's hard to lose them at any age, though.

Mrs. Wolverton was my 4th grade teacher at Eucalyptus Elem School. I'm 64 years old now, so do the math. She was always one of my favorite teacher's, and will never forget her. Wonderful teacher and person. George Martin.

Great Aunt Emily and her husband Great Uncle Harold provided me with many wonderful memories. Their home in Trail, Oregon. Two beautiful wonderful people.
